Last week AFAR Ambassador @zachspassport took us on a two-day tour of Lisbon for our second AFAR #instatour. From aerial views to an open-air church, we saw the city from every angle. But that’s not the only place we explored through Instagram last week.

    These dumplings are so cute we almost don’t want to eat them. Key word: almost.

    “Located west of central Lisbon, Torre de Belém is a trip best done by metro or taxi. Once there, climb the steps that date back to the 16th century and get a bird’s-eye view of the Portuguese capital. Some of its neighbors will make venturing into this area more than worthwhile, too. Jeronimos Monastery features beautiful Manueline architecture, and Pasteis de Belém is a prime spot to devour Portugal’s most renowned dessert: the pastel de nata.”—@zachspassport

    “The Santa Justa lift and its adjacent platform offer direct sight lines into downtown Lisbon. You can look down at Rua Áurea as it bustles with locals and tourists alike, observe residents of nearby apartments reading or enjoying a chat out on balconies, and take a deep breath amongst the endless sea of terra-cotta roofs.”—@zachspassport

    Pretzels in Poland

    When in Poland, eat as the Polish eat, of course. Trying street food is a great way to taste local cuisine, especially when that local cuisine is known for its pretzels!

    “In operation since 1873, the yellow-and-red streetcars are the perfect focal point for any photograph of Lisbon. On a walk in any of Lisbon’s key neighborhoods (Alfama, Rossio, Bairro Alto), you’ll be chasing these celebrated trolleys—as I did—while they snake their way up and down streets and around corners.”—@zachspassport

    “The church at the Carmo Convent is a beautiful skeleton, a roofless reminder of the city’s tragic earthquake in 1755. As you walk around the archaeological museum, pointed arches soar above you, and there is seemingly nothing but blue sky to support them.”—@zachspassport

    The Castelo de São Jorge, is one of the Alfama neighborhood’s most historically significant monuments. “Plan a visit late in the afternoon so that you can explore every nook and cranny and learn about the castle’s abundant history. Stay for golden hour so that you can capture the light as it dances on the castle walls, and later to watch the sunset dip below the horizon.”—@zachspassport
